The health of our student-athletes, campus communities, fans and general public is an ongoing priority of the Southeastern Conference and its member institutions.

The SEC continues to monitor the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and is in regular communications with member institutions and public health officials related to the spread of the disease.

All SEC regular season conference and non-conference competitions beginning Thursday, March 12 were cancelled for the remainder of the 2019-20 athletic year, including all remaining SEC championship events, due to developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). In addition, all spring football games were cancelled and no pro days were conducted by SEC institutions.

Other athletics activities, including team and individual practices, meetings and other organized gatherings, whether voluntary or required, are suspended through June 7.

Voluntary in-person athletics activities may resume on SEC campuses, at the discretion of each university, beginning June 8. During the month of June, NCAA regulations permit only strength and conditioning personnel to supervise voluntary on-campus athletics activities. Consistent with NCAA regulations, organized practices and other required physical activities remain prohibited in all sports.

A current waiver that permits eight (8) hours of virtual film review has been extended through June 30 for all sports.

Camps and coaches clinics held by SEC schools are suspended through July 31.

SEC member institutions will continue to provide their student-athletes with care and support to meet needs in areas including academics, medical care, mental health and wellness, nutrition and housing as needed.

The SEC encourages the use of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website (www.cdc.gov) as a source of information for advice on preventive action and updates on the disease, and to seek medical advice from qualified medical professionals when necessary and appropriate.
